In life you will always find someone who is smarter than you, has more money than you, etc.
The materialistic things are not the important part of this conversation.
What is important is that you always have friends who are those things for many reasons.
When you have someone who you feel has made it in life, whether it’s career wise, school wise, etc it serves as inspiration.
It inspires you to reach your dreams and your goals. Their mindset rubs off on you and gives you an aura of confidence that will help you achieve all of your goals and dreams.
When you often only spend time with people who are not inspired to do anything or are not making steps in their lives to be happy then it rubs off on you.
It is like the saying birds of a feather flock together, and tell me who you surround yourself with and I will tell you who you are.
This does not mean that you can’t have friends of every level. Just make sure you have friends that inspire you to do more and be more. To inspire you to be the best version of yourself and happy with everything you choose in life.
This will always keep you reaching your best potential in all aspects of life.
